    I've got a lot of his instruction books. He'll be missed.

    Names like Himie's and the wonderfully monikered Nilo Harvey will live on long after their time on the planet. Can't think of a better memorial for either of them than method books that will be used for the next sixty years.

    ...I've already forgotten him.

    Actually, I mostly recalled his first name...
